The Choir!

Hello Everyone, hoping you are all tickity boo, and had some lovely weather where you are. Not too bad here, and it's a glorious evening.
I've been so tired today, I had a day cooking at work, and then the noise from the workmen outside our door was awful. There are new flood defenses being put in all along the our street and the workmen are under pressure to have the road reopened by the end of July, mind you they are no way finished, they will be back after summer to close down the road and crake on with the work. It was the turn of drills today, and I'm sure I'm not the only one ending up with a corker of a headache.  Our way into the building is like a maze too, and sometimes it's impossible to find your way around the barricades until you can catch the eye of a workman to let you in.  We are learning a lot about road construction, clients and staff alike.

Anyway on to my card;
Decided to make a card for a challenge, I don't do them often now unless I can have someone in mind for it, but you always need Christmas cards.
LOTV Topper and Paper and Sentiment
Music Score my own
The Ribbon Girl Seam Binding
Papermania Sparkle Domes
Hobby House Red and Gold Pearls
Star Dust

Just a simple wee card which I would like to enter into http://christmasblogchallenge.blogspot.co.uk/2014/06/a-christmas-choir.html

That's me for tonight, but before I go I'd like to thank you all for the lovely comments about my pop up box card from yesterday
Blogger still playing up, seems like we are all experiencing the same problem, I hope it gets fixed
as I'm sure I'm missing out some blogs.

Hi Kate, love your Christmas card especially the wee bit of sparkle and inking.
Shame about the workmen especially when you've got a day at home.
Hopefully the work will be done in time.

Hugs Erika. x

Wonderful, wonderful Christmas Card - I love LOTV images and think that they are the best ever. Just popping in Kate - I should get back to working in this house - going through drawers and cupboard clean and straightening and getting rid of thing I don't use - I hate doing this but I have not done it in about 6 years. If my house was a boat it would be sinking. Why did you have a day cooking at work? No more headaches!!!!!!!!

Hi Kate,
what very fab card.. Great idea the music sheet of the carol. The LOTV image is wonderfully cute too.
Sounds horrendous all that noise.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Lovely! The musical score paper was brilliant to put behind this little choral group. Even more appropriate for you as I read that you sing in a choral group yourself!
